I'm more than tempted.... it's what I'll be doing!

WHAT THE FRAK!!! :evil:

Have fun explaining that one! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
My head cannon is that Disco is a holodeck program, created by a bored teenager living on some space station on the tail end of nowhere, where his parents are stationed. There's no one else his age around, so he spends his time making holo-novels that play fast and loose with the history they don't rewrite wholesale.

That's how I fit it, in the prime universe. ;)
Right! hahahahahaha

It's NOT ANYWHERE near Prime from where I sit and see.
I like the ships, but they aren't Prime, PERIOD. hahahaha
Só I may get these and display them in a separate area, just like the ships from JJVerse, lol
Laterz...

they have stated since the beginimng they did visual update retcon to the tos era prime universe to make it fit post ent era and pre tng era also they said the tos stories happened but the way it looked is not the real look as they put it the look of tos was a low buget recreation of the events from the logs of capt kirk and his senior officers in universe
also you can also look to first contact for the another reason as the timeline is altered in minor ways aka the visual look of ent and dsc compared to what it looked like before first contact

So this is the "official" 1/2500 release for the next year or two? I remember a survey that had a number of other options. I was kind of expecting movie era, Voyager or Enterprise subjects.

While Discovery is the new/exciting kid on the block, it seems to be a limited audience (those that are forking out $ for CBS access -- I am not a member of that club) and an out-of-the-blue announcement/head-fake from previous postings.

Did anyone predict this? Are they also doing stuff they previously hinted at?

I'll be getting all of these in 1/2500, the price should be decent and the detail should also be decent. Now I'm glad I held off on getting the Eaglemoss ships, these should be more appropriately priced.

I'm sooooo not a fan of Discovery! However I will buy these. The Enterprise will be painting pearlescent white and displayed with my 1/1400 or 1/1000 Movie era ships, the Shenzhou will be displayed next to my Akira and Norway class models and painted late TNG style, and the Discovery herself might find a place among my Wolf 359 fleet :)

:lol:

same for me,
the enterprise saucer might go on a Intrepid class main hull, remaining parts might be put in use for some ISS ship ... :mrgreen:

Guys, I've crunched some numbers.

This poster from Round 2 assumes the following actual hero ship sizes:

USS Discovery - 750 meters
USS Enterprise - 482.5 meters :shock:
USS Shenzhou - 425 meters


If we were to pretend that the Star Trek: Discovery Enterprise and the TOS Enterprise were both the exact same dimensions at 288.646 meters and therefore scale down the Crossfield and Walker classes to those dimensions, this is what we'd get:

Reconciled USS Discovery - 445 meters
Reconciled USS Shenzhou - 253 meters

Ironically, the Eaglemoss USS Discovery is pretty darn close to a reconciled 1/2500 size. That assumes a size of 483 meters, so the Eaglemoss Discovery is a bit larger than a "true" 1/2500.
